Need module Recommendation Please - For scanned documents

My problem is I am trying to make available to the public, public documents from local government entities. It is imperative the material contained inside the documents are searchable, preferably by the XOOPS search engine.

I have tried wf-section 2.07 which allows inline pdf's but it seems even with a searchable pdf that the XOOPS search engine will not search the document internally.

I have converted some of the documents to html files and copy and pasted the code into the smartsection editor. That works, but scanning documents to ocr htm does not work very well. The html it creates is non compliant for the most part.

It would be best if the documents could be scanned in searchable pdf format and loaded directly on the site and somehow have that document internally searchable by the XOOPS search engine.

Any thoughts, module suggestions or ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks

Foz

I think that this is asking an awful lot.

If you Google for 'searchable PDFs' you'll find it requires a specialised solution. I don't think you'll find an answer for your requirements using Xoops.
A thread is for life. Not just for Christmas.

Hi Guys.

Thanks for the responses.

A fellow xoopster may have found a solution that works.

As I posted in that thread I have the modules installed and I am currently tinkering with them.

So far it looks possible with a searchable pdf.

Is anyone using these modules?

Thanks
